Summer is off and running ...

...and I am trying to catch up! All the rain and chill has made it feel awfully unsummery.
Summer things so far:
-Made a blueberry pie
-Went to the lake and swam
-A little road trip
- Fireworks on the Fourth
-Playing in the dirt (otherwise known as gardening)
-lots of mango, pineapple, blueberries, nectarines and cantaloupe and strawberries...fruit salad happiness.
- playing summer music on the car cd player
-BBQ'd suppers
- College boy home for the summer rising past noon
Still... need buckets and sand fun. A longer road trip. Chowder. Lazy sleeping in mornings. Sun sun sun and more sun. Need to complain about the heat. Swim in salt water. Eat tomatoes warm from the garden (ours have moulted in the rain...they look quite alarming). And I need some sort of boat ride....maybe then I'll be convinced it's already mid-July.
